Iam not able to install Wireshark (64-bit) (3.2.14 or 3.4.6) on my windows VM (running on Windows Server 2019 Datacenter). I get error: "The Visual C++ Redistribution installer failed with error 1618. Please make sure you have KB2999226 or KB3118401 installed. Unable to continue installation."

When I search outside, I see KB2999226 or KB3118401 comes with Windows Server 2019 installations.

How can we get around this ?

This got resolved. I made sure no other user is logged in, and no Active MSIEXEC.exe Task is running.

The handling of errors reported by the VC Redist installer is a problematic area, it seems the Wireshark installer could do a better job in this case.

Could you raise an issue over at the Wireshark Issue Tracker?
